Most marketers cringe at the thought of managing the holistic customer experience. Actually, according to Gleanster Research 4 out of 5 enterprise marketers indicate improving the customer experience across channels and geographies is a current or planned priority in 2012.
In a distributed enterprise, corporate marketing is charged with managing a consistent brand across channels, but field marketers need autonomy and flexibility to deliver relevant messages that drive sales at a local level. This is particularly true for primary channels like email marketing where digital messages can be dynamically personalized for target audiences. But, empowering local marketers with email capabilities can lead to organized chaos on a global scale – and ultimately fragmented or inconsistent customer communications.
